The Secret of the Lockett
by 9 year-old Erika Pogue and her grandmother,
Give more meaning to
your holidays with Gertie's special magic.
Gertie's Christmas Magic is a children's
story you might relish on the pages of a holiday magazine.
Full of nostalgia and Christmas spirit, it will leave you with
that wonderful warm Christmas feeling.
The story covers seven generations of
holiday traditions with a little Christmas magic and a special
homespun rag doll playing in between.
Illustrations by Kas Winters bring the story
to life from before the turn of the century to present day.
This book is
dedicated to my 89 year old mother, Helen Spies. Even though
this book was born in my imagination, the names and memories
are a real part of my life. My maternal grandparents names
were Gertie and Edmond. I imagine my grandmother would have
been much like Gertie when she was a girl. I sincerely hope
that something is this book stirs a Christmas memory for you,
something that you may have forgotten or tucked into the
cobwebs of an attic somewhere. Travel back with me and
remember the joy of Christmas when you were very young.
